Paul Pogba sounded coy when asked about his future prospects, suggesting he is in talks with former Juventus teammates amid an expiring contract.
Paul Pogba has recently broken silence about his future, in a recent interview with Sport Mediaset. The Manchester United midfielder is currently one of the in-form players around, in the Premier League, but his future at Old Trafford has come under question as his contract expires at the end of the season.
In the interview, Pogba sent mixed signals over his future, suggesting he remains in contact with former Juventus teammates like Paulo Dybala.
“I like Torino! [laughs] I always speak with former Juve teammates like Dybala,” Pogba told Sport Mediaset, as per reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano.
His comments are even more relevant at a time when the Frenchman has been linked with a potential return to Turin next summer after his Manchester United contract comes to an end. The midfielder did add that he remains focused on performing in the Premier League for now, especially as we head into the second phase of the campaign.
“I’m in Manchester now, I’m under contract until June then let’s see. I want to complete this season at best level – then we see,” said the Manchester United ace, who has been in sensational form in the early parts of the campaign.
In fact, Pogba might just be enjoying his best season yet at Old Trafford, having registered seven assists in just seven league matches. His creativity, technical prowess and link-up play with the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo have helped the Red Devils emerge as one of the main contenders to seal the Premier League title this term.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did sound confident when asked about the scope of tying the midfielder down to a new contract. However, at the end of the day, a lot may depend on how the club fares in all competitions.
The Red Devils, after all, have had a disastrous period lately, losing to Aston Villa 1-0 before being held to a 1-1 draw by Everton. They are set to resume their Premier League campaign next weekend as they welcome Leicester City at Old Trafford, shortly after the international break.
